Note&Do: Take Notes And Maintain To Do Lists In Microsoft Office [Add-In]

While working on computer, it is not unusual to forget about something you had to do. It often happens that while working on a document, we get brilliant ideas to add to it, but can't recall them later. The usual thing to do is to either get a sticky note and jot down the idea on it, but finding a sticky note and pen or a pencil can take a lot of time, and distract you from the task at hand. If you create a text file on your desktop, there’s a fat chance that you will completely forget about the file after some time. Note&Do is an add-on for Microsoft Office that integrates with Microsoft Word, Outlook, Excel and PowerPoint, & enables a Notes and To Do bar in the right side of the applications, allowing you to take quick notes by typing or dragging & dropping text, noting down tasks that need to be performed. Each note and task is universal, in the sense that when a note is added to one application, it is viewable in all supported four Microsoft Office utilities. Read More

Backup And Restore MS Office & Windows Activation Tokens

Microsoft imposes a limit on number of times Windows or other Microsoft paid applications license keys can be activated on different PCs. Take Windows 7 as an instance, you can use your license activation key for only 10 times and after that you will need to purchase a new license. If you’re already running short of Windows 7 license activation keys due to constant re-installation of Windows, you can use 7Token Manager, which attempts to save the tokens of activated Windows 7 in order to use it again later. However, if 7Token Manager fails to activate Windows back in offline mode, there is one tool which you can try before giving up all hope. Advance Tokens Manager is a powerful Windows 7/Vista and MS Office 2010/2007 activation token backup tool which lets you save and restore both Microsoft products’ activation keys with a single click.

Document Press: Compress MS Office Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access

Document Press is an attempt from developers of 7-Zip compression utility to compress Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access files instead of using other generic compression software, which might not be effective in compressing MS Office documents. It is a small portable tool which was released back in 1999 (Yes, I know it is more than a decade back) and has not been updated since. The version is still 1.0 and the reason for reviewing it today is because we found it to be working with Office 2010 as well. Developed for older versions of Office, the official support, as mentioned in the user's manual, is for .doc, .xls, .ppt, and some more document formats only, but we found it to be working with .docx and .xlsx too.
